How To do Lever Triceps Dip
Starting Position: Sit in the tricep machine and adjust the seat so that you are comfortable. Align your shoulder as closely to the pivot point of the machine as possible.
Form: Exhale and push down on the machine and straighten your arms. Hold for a brief second and then inhale and return to the starting position.
Personal Trainer Tips: In this exercise it is important to be mindful of the position of your shoulders throughout. Some people have a tendency to shrug the shoulders up as the elbows bend.
In addition this exercise requires a lot of flexibility in the shoulders. If you have tight and stiff shoulders it may be difficult to stay in proper form.
